Just wanted to make a quick post about using the “Notify” feature in the forums. 

If there’s a particular forum (or thread/topic within a forum) that you’d like stay up-to-date on via email, simply use the “Notify” button in the top and bottom menus.   That way, you’ll receive an email notification anytime a new post is made.  NOTE: You must be logged-in to see the Notify button.

You may also select “Notify me of replies” from the Additional Options menu when you post a new message or reply.

Utilizing the Notify feature may help liven the discussions a bit during (for some of us) the slow season.  And you shouldn't have to worry much about a flood of emails as a result.  We're a fairly quiet bunch...  But you can turn Notify off, too, if things get crazy.

If you have any questions, drop me a note, or reply to this thread and I will be notified.

Randy

Randy;

Love the forum and the Notify feature. I wonder if this is trival on the part of forum setup or is infact not an option here.

I travel quite a bit and am also cursed with carrying a BlackBerry.  One of the nice features on AVS is that the notification includes the quote of the post much like the private message notification does here.  Is it possible to enable that (I assume it would be limited to a number of characters) feature for subscribed posts here?

That would be handier.  I'll look into it.  Thanks!

This is in place now and can be controlled via your profile page.  Enjoy, and thanks for the suggestion!

The notify feature seems to work fine for individual threads but doesn't seem to work 100% when a whole new thread is created even though I subscribed to the whole forum.

I haven't researched it too much but if there are 3 new topics created, will I only get an email on the first one and not the other 2 if I don't visit the forums right away?  I know that's how it works for thread subscriptions but that's not how it should work for subscribing to the whole forum....

Or maybe it's just me...

Interesting... I think you're right.  Will take a look.  Thanks for the heads-up!

Hi Randy,

I use the "notify" feature daily.  I go to my e-mail first thing to search for replies.  Cuts it down to the quick for me.  Great tool.  Good job on the website.  Seems very thorough.

Thanks.

Very nice feature, I use it often and I am going to put this feature into several of the Forums that I have designed for myself and others
Keep up the great Work
